Description

The Vantage Point:
Valhallveien, Ekeberg, second highest curve
Starting point: Konows gate, Gamlebyen
Distance: 2.6 km
Incline: 120 hm
Roadway: asphalt

Several fine vantage points are found within cycling distance from the centre of Oslo. The Valhall curve is probably the best vantage point in the city. It is also known as the place where Edvard Munch was inspired to paint his world-famous painting "Scream". You will recognise the painting's landscape contours as you enjoy the view from Valhallveien.
Recommended route (from Gamlebyen): from Oslo gate via Dyvekes vei, Konowsgt to Valhallveien, stop in the last tight curve below Ekeberg Camping.
